3. Are care providers required to participate in the same activity as the person they are supporting?Permanent link to Are care providers required to participate in the same activity as the person they are supporting?
This depends on the level of support the assisted guest needs (direct or fading). The care provider should be prepared to join in the activity, switch activities or end the visit early, if required.
If the care provider is participating in activities within a paid-admissions area of the facility, and is separated from the guest they are supporting, the care provider requires a paid admissions pass.

Since all children under the age of 8 require the same level of supervision, care provider guidelines are not applicable.
